I am a geographer with a particular interest in technology, based at the University of Exeter. My research principally concerns the design and use of technologies and technical practices that are significant to how we experience space and place.
My research aims to contribute to how we understand the increasing importance of mediating technologies in our lives. Key here are two themes: how we understand spatial experience and how we understand ‘mediation’ and technology. I explore geographies of technology by unpicking what ‘technologies’ are and how they are involved in our understandings and experiences of space and place. This work informs how I contribute to the teaching of geography at Exeter, in particular modules concerning cultural geographies and dissertations on a range of topics. I conduct research and organise events that situate and study the ways we design, use and imagine technologies. This website is a means for sharing my work. Read my latest blog post at /blog.
More broadly, I contribute to advancing the understanding and public communication of human geography as a committee member of the History and Philosophy of Geography Research Group of the Royal Geographical Society (with the IBG).
